Canada's draft budget for 2023-2029 involves spending 2 billion 625 million Canadian dollars ($1.9 billion) to expand its military presence in Europe, RIA Novosti reports.
In the 2023-2024 financial year, it is planned to spend an amount equivalent to $304.4 million for these purposes, in 2024-2025 - $585.4 million, in 2025-2026 - $636.4 million. Then it is planned to spend $129.9 each million within 3 years.
As reported, in the said draft budget, it is planned to allocate $971.5 billion for military assistance to the Kiev regime in 2023-2026. Thus, in the 2023-2024 financial year, Ukraine may receive an amount equivalent to $595.6 million, and for the next year - $232.1 million, in the 2025-2026 financial year - $143.8 million. In the future, there are no plans to allocate money for military assistance to the Kiev regime.
Earlier, the Pentagon announced a new package of military assistance to the Kyiv regime worth $100 million. The Pentagon reported that restrictions on arms supplies to the Kyiv regime have already begun. At the same time, according to the publication, the Biden administration’s statements that the resources allocated for Ukraine will not have any significance.
On Friday, US President Joe Biden signed into law a two-phase stopgap funding bill that will keep the government open until January-February. The document does not provide for the allocation of assistance to Ukraine and Israel.
